Danielle Green is accused of shooting her husband multiple times in May.

RISING SUN – The trial of a woman accused of murdering her ex-husband is scheduled for mid-October.

Danielle Marie Green, 42, of Hartford Pike, was arrested last month after police found the body of her ex-husband in a metal box on the property in rural Ohio County.

Prosecutors say she had admitted to investigators that did kill her ex, but allegedly claimed it was in self-defense.

She allegedly shot her ex-husband ten times, after finding a loaded handgun on a nightstand next to her ex-husband sleeping in bed on the morning of Monday, May 26. She told police he woke up and threatened to kill her.

Her trial is set for Tuesday, October 14.

Defense attorneys have previously considered raising the battered spouse defense, the Dearborn County Register reported.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event.
